Professional Organization of Nursing Students (PONS)

Mission Statement

PONS is the official registered student organization of undergraduate nursing students at the University of Washington. It is an entirely student driven group with a format that fosters communication and friendship between students within classes, between juniors and seniors, and with faculty members. Together we are committed to achieving common goals and objectives: to be active in the community, to facilitate a positive experience for incoming students, to organize recruitment activities, and to initiate relationships that provide a valuable enhancement to the nursing curriculum. All BSN students are eligible to participate in PONS, and elections for officers are held during the junior year.
